Now go eat that Voodoo that they do so well
Not sure why you’d want your slice spiced by an ancient Beninian religion, but if you can get over the gratuitous appropriation of a cultural meme, Voodoo Ray’s in Dalston (related to the Dalston Superstore, so it’s all haircuts and music turned up to 11 even when there’s no one in there, but hey) is well worth a visit for monster slices of 22-inch pizza that taste of magic – black or otherwise.
The thin bases pick up tasty stone-browned patches in an American Garland baker’s oven, and are topped with intense, flavour-packed sauces. My Chili Slice (£4.20) had a thin but rich layer of chilli con carne, red onion, generous slices of jalapeño, mozzarella and sour cream. Eat folded in half with two hands, meaty juices dripping down your arms. That’s the kind of voodoo ritual I like.
Voodoo Ray’s, 95 Kingsland High St, E8. Open 6pm-1am Sun-Thurs, 4pm-3am Fri & Sat. facebook.com/VoodooRays
